Featured Golf Course Review:
Lake Whitney Golf & Tennis Club -- Relaxing
Review by: Richard Mayjuana Relaxing is the best word I can use for this course. Within shouting distance of Lake Whitney, the view from some tees remind you of playing on a rolling hill country course in the Austin area. Most important is the pace is slow on most days. Rarely have I seen the course crowded to the point you feel rushed, or find yourself waiting on others to finish. Many improvements have also been made to the course over the past few years that increase the enjoyment of play. New ground keeping has improved the look and feel of the course to more of a country club atmosphere, and less of a municipal course, while still keeping its muni-charm. Finally, it is a great value for the price. $40.00 (+/-) for fees and a cart... How can you go wrong?

Lake Whitney Golf & Tennis Club -- It's alright. Nothing more, nothing less
Review by: Lawrence "Red" Gangea In all honesty, I feel the other reviews may be overselling Whitney. Yes, the views are nice, but do you really play golf for the views? How about some challenges? There is some of that on 2 or 3 holes that have elevation changes or blind shots, but not enough to stand out. The upgrades looked promising (it's been stop and start for 5 years), but have never come through. Yes, Lake Whitney Golf Club is a goat ranch, but it has charm. It's wide open in most places, so it's nothing compared to its neighbor, White Bluff (i.e.: real grass, sand in the bunkers instead of hardpan dirt, more than two water hazards, sprinkler system, etc.), but it is fun to play, though losing your ball in the rock field on the course's back half is always possible. The bonus is that it's in the middle of nowhere, so you can be sure you will not be bothered, or have someone complain you are playing too slow. Just remember, this is no country club, and I don't think I'd want it any other way. Check it out if you find yourself around the lake with nothing else to do, or the $75 and up it takes for the White Bluff resort down the street.

White Bluff Resort - The New Course -- True test of golf
Review by: RAB The New Course at White Bluff Resort is a true test of golf. I am biased, but this course will compete with any public course in the state. It is the annual host of Texas State Open. At 7,000 yards from the tips, length is not your concern. 1,2 and 3 are almost claustrophobic and getting to number 4 tee will bring a sigh of relief. You need to score on 4-8 and make par on 9 to keep a good round going. On 10, you'll need to stay left on large oak on the right side of the fairway. Water is lurking just behind the bunker. 11 is your best opportunity for birdie on the back. 12 is the signature hole on the New Course. The fairway is usually firm and you only need to play to 150 yd marker. Pray for a three on 15 and take a look at the green on 16 before swinging away on this dogleg right par 5. 18 is the #1 handicap and is a 460 yd. 4 par that plays into the prevailing south wind. Par here is a great score. If the 16 holes with water in play bother you, stop by the Old Course. It is an exceptional golf course that will produce birdie as easily as it will a triple.
